Hate Must Stop Before Peace Can Happen

Real Peace Middle East (RPME), is a not-for-profit organization based in Miami, Florida. Rabbi Sam Intrator is president of this organization and has just released a trilogy of mini-webisodes on Youtube that satirize U.S. policies toward Israel as well as conflicting attitudes many liberal Jews in America have toward Israel. On Thursday October 18th, a demonstration in support of Israel by both Democratic and Republican Rabbis was executed in front of the Israeli Consulate in Miami. Rabbi Sam Intrator is the former Rabbi of the world renowned Carlebach Shul in New York City and is a prominent spiritual teacher. Today, he is the Rabbi of the Carlebach Minyan in Miami Beach, Florida. In practice and message, Rabbi Sam crosses the boundaries between Jewish denominations to reveal a common heritage as the source of the Jewish tradition. Another boundary he crosses at times is Politics. Similar to many other liberal Jews, he is a life-long Democrat who like other Rabbis today, is concerned about contradictory irrational U.S policies toward the Middle East and Israel in particular. Rabbi Sam believes these policies are hampering instead of helping the peace process between Israel and its Palestinian neighbors. Rabbi Sam also spoke to students at Lynn University about the peace between Israeli’s and Palestinians.

October Fest at Hop Won Dinner Club!

Grab your friends and Hop Won over after work for two-for-one House drink specials from 4-7pm and try the featured EntrĂ©e and Beer pairings on Fabulous Fridays and Sexy Saturdays! Be sure to reserve your table, for this is the event of the weekend you don’t want to miss!


BOCA RATON, FL.--TransMedia Group's worldwide publicity for Venus, the "two-faced" cat, including appearances the firm arranged on NBC Today Show, has resulted in a lucrative contract for the cat's owners with Gund, one of the world's leading manufacturers of teddy bears and other stuffed animals for gifts and collectibles.

"When there seems to be a new cute kitten gaining YouTube fame each week, it's tough to stand out from the cat crowd," said trustee Tom Madden, TransMedia founder and CEO, "but we managed to do it."
Madden's firm made Venus the internet star du jour thanks in large part to the work of TransMedia publicists Donna Balancia, who got some great national media placements and Abby Blake, who was superb on social media, Madden said.

The feline's face is perfectly divided in two - one half is jet black while the other is calico. And, as if this wasn't enough, her eyes are different colors too - one is ice blue, the other is green, Madden said. You can see her on the firm's website at

Venus is known as a chimera cat because of her genetic composition and her different eye colors caused by heterochromia. Venus has several YouTube videos which have been seen over 2 million times with thousands clicking the 'like' button. Venus now has her own Facebook page too that TransMedia manages, where she has attracted more than 80,000 fans. Venus' proud owner praises TransMedia Group for all the media meows and kudos Venus has received and now the Gund contract is icing on the chimera cake.

Israel And Palestine At The Peace Table? Are you kidding me?

In past years, the relationship between Israel and Palestine has been delicate, if not rocky. Lately, the situation has gotten more severe and U.S policies aren’t helping the peace process. The not-for-profit group, Real Peace Middle East ( ) an organization of Rabbis and peace advocates, is offering a new approach—comedy. It has joined with Hollywood to create a satiric trilogy for YouTube. The mini webisodes illustrate the incoherent and contradictory White House policies towards the Middle East and Israel. The objective of these satires is to broaden the discussion and result in a peace agreement, starting with making fun of the erratic U.S policies and occasionally irrational political attitudes toward Israel on the part of liberal Jews.
